Alderwicks recognises that the education sector is uniquely complex and changeable and can provide cost effective client-focussed legal solutions on all relevant issues.
Within the Education sector and in particular Universities, we have seen a significant increase in the need for advice in relation to commercial activities, procurement, governance and charity law, IP issues, and estate issues. There has also been a significant increase in matters being referred to the Office of the Independent Adjudicator as well as Freedom of Information requests and Data Protection issues.
Alderwicks Managing Director, Philip Griffiths, is also a member of the Association of University Legal Practitioners and as such is aware of the raft of legal issues currently concerning University lawyers and senior management across the UK.
Alderwicks also has significant experience and expertise in Intellectual Property matters within research development and collaboration and agreements in relation to Knowledge Transfer Partnerships.
